Aspen Landscape Architecture, Aspen Landscape Architect, Aspen Urban Design, Aspen Resort Development, Aspen Urban Regional Planner, Aspen Private Sector Planner
Stan Clauson Associates began in 1978 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The firm has long been involved in public sector projects, as well as providing support to individuals and the development community. We provide design and planning services for a full range of projects, from fine residences to hotel development, including all phases of permit process assistance.
Our work involves responsible and sustainable design of resort and small community environments. We take projects through the land use permit process that we believe will enhance the quality of life for a community, and we work closely with community groups and elected officials to craft workable compromises to bring a vision into a reality.
We were active in the revitalization of public housing in Boston, pioneered bike path development in New England under federal ISTEA legislation passed in 1991, and worked closely with the National Trust Main Street Program on revitalization projects in small communities. Our work in affordable housing in Vermont won recognition from the U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development. In 1998, the firm was re-formed when its principal, Stan Clauson, left his tenure as Community Development Director for the City of Aspen, Colorado, to return to private practice. Awards from the Aspen Historic Preservation Commission have recognized residential and commercial projects.
